star this property answer text <p>The funding and delivery of National Health Service bereavement services, including the training of staff, is a local matter.</p><p>Bereavement care is a key part of the provision of good end of life care as set out in the Government’s end of life care Choice Commitment, published in July 2016. As part of this, Health Education England, in partnership with Skills for Care and Skills for Health, published a refreshed End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework in March 2017. This aims to standardise end of life care training and education, including around bereavement care. The Government’s Choice Commitment and the framework can be found at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/choice-in-end-of-life-care-government-response" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/choice-in-end-of-life-care-government-response</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.skillsforhealth.org.uk/services/item/536-end-of-life-care-cstf-download" target="_blank">www.skillsforhealth.org.uk/services/item/536-end-of-life-care-cstf-download</a></p><p> </p><p>The importance of bereavement care is also reflected in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Quality Standard on end of life care, and other NICE end of life care guidance, which commissioners should take into account when planning services for local populations. The Quality Standard, which highlights that children may need specific tailored support to help them with bereavement, can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/qs13" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/qs13</a></p><p> </p><p>The Quality Standard draws on a range of evidence, including older Departmental guidance such as When a person dies: guidance for professionals on developing bereavement services, first published by the Department in 2005, and updated in 2011 by the Primary Care Commissioning Service with support from the NHS National End of Life Care Programme and the Bereavement Services Association. The guidance can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.pcc-cic.org.uk/sites/default/files/articles/attachments/when_a_person_dies_19_oct_2011.pdf" target="_blank">www.pcc-cic.org.uk/sites/default/files/articles/attachments/when_a_person_dies_19_oct_2011.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department funds research on health and social care through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). NIHR does not usually ring-fence funds for specific disease areas such as dementia. NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health including dementia. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. In all disease areas, the amount of NIHR funding depends on the volume and quality of scientific activity. NIHR funding for dementia research grew to £44.6 million in 2016/17, up from £37 million in 2015/16. This is a major contribution to meeting the commitment under the Government’s 2020 Dementia Challenge, to maintain funding at £60 million a year. The other main public funders of dementia research are the Medical Research Council, which in 2016/17 spent <del class="ministerial">£30.6</del> <ins class="ministerial">£36 </ins>million, and the Economic and Social Research Council, which spent £2.5 million, to bring total Government spending on dementia research to £83.1 million.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department funds research on health and social care through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The usual practice of NIHR is not to ring-fence funds for expenditure on particular topics, with research proposals from all areas competing for available funding. NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health including dementia. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. The amount of NIHR funding in a disease area therefore depends on scientific activity. However, the Government’s 2020 Dementia Challenge makes a commitment to maintain public funding for dementia research at £60 million a year to 2020. NIHR funding for dementia research grew to £44.6 million in 2016/17, with total public funding for dementia research standing at £83.1 million, ahead of the 2020 commitment.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the valuable contribution made by carers who spend a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to friends and family members, including those who are ill or have disabilities. That is why the Government is committed to continuing to support carers, who are vital partners in the health and care system, and will continue to support carers in a way that supports their own health and wellbeing, employment and other life chances.</p><p> </p><p>The Department will shortly be publishing a Carers Action Plan, setting out a cross-Government programme of targeted work to support carers over the next two years. Within the Action Plan there will be a chapter dedicated to carers in employment which will cover improving working practices, flexible working and returning to work.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has also been working with the Timewise Foundation on a project to promote best practice in the use of employment flexibilities to support carers. Last month, Timewise launched a new Carers’ Hub – a one-stop shop for support, advice and flexible job opportunities to help carers balance their responsibilities with fulfilling careers, as well as offering best practice guidance on flexible working and flexible hiring practices, in order to help employers find and keep talented people who want or need to work in this way.</p><p> </p><p>More information about the Carers’ hub can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.timewisejobs.co.uk/caring/" target="_blank">https://www.timewisejobs.co.uk/caring/</a></p>
